Hey everyone! Just popping in to talk about a dearly loved design that has just been published in the January/February 2014 issue of Quilty! I named it “Heart of the Ocean” after the deep blues and all the neat jewel shapes that form from these big blocks. It turned out so, so lovely in the photos! Thank you, Quilty!
Debbie Taylor and Natalia Bonner did an excellent job piecing & quilting, as always! The fabric is Avalon by Fig Tree Quilts.
My favorite feature of the quilt is the neat striped pinwheel hidden in the stars. We all love stars, but often I just need to throw something extra in there and be-dazzle it. They are easy to do and look so interesting.
Quilty’s Mary Fons actually did a video featuring this quilt. Seriously. I nearly hugged my computer when I read her email about it. (I didn’t though, that might look a little weird.) Please watch the video and leave her some love!
And of course, please drop us a note and let me know what you think!
